According to a campus e-mail and a public news conference (viewable here), the gunman “expressed threats in his personal journal toward Wesleyan and/or its Jewish students.” We’re all being urged to stay inside our residences. Basically everything that requires people walking around campus has been canceled – professors mostly aren’t coming to campus, dining halls aren’t open, and all meetings should be canceled. Wesleyan students, check your e-mail for info about how to acquire lunch safely.
As you’ve probably noticed, Wesleying isn’t the most up-to-date source for information on this developing story. The site is having problems with bandwidth overload – we have put measures in place to make the site load more easily and reduce this problem, but it’s not perfect. The ACB has the most up-to-date (if sometimes incorrect and unnecessarily panic-inducing) info, and the campus alerts have all the necessary info.
Also, NBC has reported additional details about how Stephen Morgan knew Johanna; apparently she had filed complaints against him in 2007.
Stay safe, Wesleyan.

To reiterate Beau’s latest post, get the most up-to-date info on the situation from the Campus Security newsreel.
